Hey there 78! Would love to be of any assistance That I can.
My bilge blower is also on top of the tank. When I got the boat out to begin my minor restoration project, the blower motor was seized. Ordered a new one off of eBay and installed it and it works fine now.
Feel free to contact me any time. I live in Houston and my phone number is 281-788-3484. I will not likely answer a number I don't recognize, so text first or leave message and I wil call you back.
Hello- I have a 78 and live in the Austin area. Was wondering if my son and I could pick your brain sometime. We'd really appreciate any help. In particular about the bilge blower placement. Ours is on top of the gas tank.
